Nerds on Earth exists to highlight the best of a Friendly Local Game Shop (FLGS). That means lots of board game reviews, tips and ideas on roleplaying games, comic book coverage, and other nerdy stuff that’s adjacent to game shops or is beloved by nerds, like the MCU or Star Wars.
We’re proud of the success of Nerds on Earth. Our traffic for 2019 was 1.98 MILLION, so we were a measly 20K short of two million nerds. Sadly, our desire was for infinity readers, so we fell well short of projections. So tell someone about Nerds on Earth, will ya? Share us on social media and please link us on any site you may have. That’s the only thing that will help us achieve that two million in 2020 and finally make my dad proud of me.
We published 347 articles in 2019 about nerdy things, with the most being last January with 41. We invite you to crack open a 5 Hour Energy and read them all.
347 is low for us and was largely due to health issues, family stress, or day jobs kicking our butts. Still, that many articles is something we are proud of, as that’s a level of content that still far outstrips most websites devoted solely to nerd culture.
To be clear, Nerds on Earth is a hobby for us and we do it because we love this stuff. We aren’t bankrolled by a multi-media corporation that’s looking to milk nerd culture for profit because of the purchasing power of key demographics. Nah, we just love this stuff like you do and rather than sit on the couch and mindlessly consume media, we find purpose and meaning from creating content, not mere consumption.
We’re proud of 347 articles for another reason as well. We’re proud because Nerds on Earth has two dozen contributors. (Meet the Nerds here.) We’re a community of nerds first and foremost. In a culture that is full of shallow, fleeting relationships, we’re most thankful that Nerds on Earth is something that is done collaboratively. Friendship is magic.
Honestly, that’s enough from me. Thank you. Truly. We’re thrilled you’ve found Nerds on Earth, even if this is your first time. Thanks so much and we wish you the very best in the days, months, and years ahead.
